Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Sanders’ serene descriptions draw you into this quaint little town while keeping with the mellow feel of her writing. Sanders also works some phenomenal illusions into her writing, giving you hints and peaks at things without ever actually mentioning them. I got so wrapped up in the stellar storyline that before I knew it hours had passed and I hadn’t put the novel down. That said, there were definitely some spelling and grammatical issues to contend with, but overall this was quite an amazing novel. I regularly had to go back over sentences to figure out what the author had intended to say, rather than what was published.

I loved the characters that were developed for this novel. They were all such real individuals who had lives and issues of their own. Although each was perfectly suited for their role in the story, none were perfect. It was a great balance.

Overall, this was a 4 star storyline but the severe editing issues knocked it down to a 3 star novel. The story and characters, however, would be worth following through the series as a whole.

This novel is currently free on Amazon!
